Susan, I just sent a reply and then searched for the Branitsky (sorry, used to Russian spelling) in Russian.

Here is what Wiki says: "Countess Alexandra Vasilyevna Branitskaya, nee Engelhardt, known as Sanya (1754 - September 15, 1838, Bila Tserkva) is the niece and lover of Grigory Potyomkin, wife of the Crown Hetman of Poland, Xavier Branicki." I'll be happy to translate the entire article and look for more info on the family. It's possible that the Alexandria you're looking for was named after her most distinguished grandmother(?).

Bena.
